Many travellers can't imagine going on a trip without their four-legged furry companion, and those who want to bring their dog along when they travel to Ottawa can do so. There are a number of hotels, restaurants and parks that are dog-friendly, so a visitor's pup can have just as much fun as its owner. Here are a few places in Canada's capital where travellers can bring man's best friend.
Wag - The Doggin' It Cafe
The Doggin' It Cafe lets owners settle in with a coffee and a bone for their pup. The pet-friendly cafe gives people plenty of room to check their emails with free Wi-Fi. Guests can check out out the menu that is complete with a list of treats for their furry companion. Also, there is a menu catered to the owners and they can kick back with a cup of coffee like the classic Joe the Dog, the dark roast Bad Dog or the decaf Neutered Dog with their dog by their side.
Conroy Pit park and Bruce Pit park
Those looking for parks where they can let their dog run should check out either Conroy Pit park or Bruce Pit park. Conroy Pit, which is located on Conroy Road, South of Hunt Club Road, is complete with parking, restrooms and poop bag dispensers, and is handicapped accessible. It features old sand pits and a forest area with nice trails for both owner and dog to enjoy. Bruce Pit is located between Baseline Road and Cedarview Road, and features a large field perfect for dogs to play fetch and other games. This park's trails are often crowded with other dogs and their owners, so if a pup enjoys other pets and people, this may be the place to go.
